Tracking Your Favorite Websites With RSS

December 05, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

RSS feeds can be compared with a links collection. Surfers may gather as many feed URLs as they want by subscribing to this service, when available on a given blog or website. The subscription does not involve any registration, hence the surfer does not need to provide a name or email address, although some alert services may optionally request them.

Once someone press a subscription button, link or graphic, the feed URL is revealed. You can start tracking RSS sources by making a desktop short cut to an URL, adding such address to your bookmarks, or copy and pasting this URL into an RSS aggregator adder. This last option is the most recommendable

Aggregators can retrieve feeds automatically so you have to enter the information once, and stay informed as long as you want. Subscribing or unsubscribing to RSS feeds is so easy as adding or deleting the URL that delivers the updates. Moreover, aggregators allow the creation of categories to easily track updates by groups or news type.

People who already have a bookmarks collection should spend some time visiting all those websites to find if there is a RSS feed subscription available, and therefore start building a feeds list. This way, instead of visiting the website periodically to find updates, such updates are retrieved automatically by the aggregator.

Consider RSS tracking as the printed newspaper you receive every morning. You do not need to travel abroad to learn what is going on another country. Same way, RSS feeds keep you informed every time that new content is added to your favorite websites, or an announcement or special invite is broadcasted.

With so many websites and so many content on the Internet, RSS feeds are a good solution to browse countless websites, blogs and news sources, without need to point your browser to any web page. Naturally, retrieve feeds is not only convenient but saves valuable time that you can use to visit only the websites that have what you are looking for.

Even though, keep in mind that RSS aggregators store feeds indefinitely, hence is necessary delete items older than a week, specially when the information is irrelevant. Otherwise, create a special category to store important updates that you do not want to lose regardless their timestamp.

To find RSS aggregators, do an online research. This software is often available for free and ready to download and start using for your tracking purposes.
